Where do I want to go.. Sri Lanka, Peru, Venezuela or what?

Postby ksr0045 » Thu Dec 26, 2013 2:19 am

Hi..

I know that there is a forum where I can see when the best season is for a special month. BUT..

I'm in the Philippines now and want to travel away from the Philippines in feb/marts. But I can't see where the best place is to go. I need some ideas? And it have to be cheap in accommodation and food.

I have been thinking I could go to:

Sri. Lanka marts and April
Venezuela Maj and June
Peru juli and August.

But now I have been talking to a guy who was telling me that it would be stupid because the wind in the places isn't there at the time I want to go..

Anybody who can help me?

Where in the Philippines are you? If Boracay, do you have any information on trips to Seco Island?

I wouldn't recommend Sri Lanka in March / April.

It's the time when the monsoon is changing from NE to SW, and the worst time of the year wind-wise.

From Mid May on, however, you will have pretty much 100% wind in the region of Kalpityia, though.

If you do not know where to go, consider Penghu, Taiwan. Always windy. We kite almost everyday in the winter with 5-7 meter kites. Here is the action on NewYear Day.

Sri Lanka has two distinct monsoon seasons: the Yala monsoon and the Maha monsoon. The wet season brought by the Yala monsoon winds lasts from May to July and affects the south-western half of the country. The Maha monsoon wind brings rains to the north-eastern half from October to January.

Let me first introduce myself. I have been kiteboarding since 2007 and have kited in some amazing places in the world, from the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean, France, Greece and Vietnam in South East Asia. I have been also teaching kiting as an IKO instructor passing on this wonderful sport to others.
The time has come for me to find a great place in the world that is exceptional for kiting and share this spot with other people who have the same passion about this sport.
I have ended up in Banda Aceh in Sumatra, Indonesia where the wind blows 15-30 knots from May to October. Here, I am working together with a friendly family run guesthouse on this Paradise island.
This is the place where we have chosen to open Seabreeze Kite Club in a beautiful location called Lhoknga.
This little Hidden Gem is still relevantly undiscovered and has so much to offer.
I would like to invite you to have a look at my website and hopefully meet you one day in the Windy season coming up soon.
